The reasons for my Spark Journey are many, even though they might not seem to be related to exercise. But for someone who has learned that if you don't push yourself to do more, then you eventually do nothing, exercise is an integral part of it. I for a long time sat down and let myself watch life pass me by, I don't want to do that anymore.

I want life in it's fullness and glory, not just tasteless redundancy.
I want Life!
I want to be a good mother to my baby Joanna.
I want to write again!
I want to sing!
I want to get out my guitar and play it!
I want to learn to be disciplined in my Bible study time... It's a Book with many layers, and I can't say I've seen them all just because I've read it before.
I want to dance!
I want to hike up a mountain and touch the sky!
I want to be able to focus better on my relationships, especially my husband.
I want to live in confidence!
I want to hear the poetry behind the wind!
I want to make a difference in peoples lives!
I want my life to bring God Glory!

But without taking care of myself and my body, especially because of my different health problems, then I can't do any of these things. So I am determined to push through and take care of myself.

And so, I will exercise, for the Glory of God.

My Goals:
I want to live healthier! I want to be more energized and active! I want to feel better about my weight and my body! And maybe loose 20-40 pounds along the way! I want to be more independent and confident in myself. Most important is to gain energy in order to be the best mother I can be to my baby daughter. My goal is to grow!

My Program:
My goals currently are to fit in excersize consistently despite having a little one underfoot. I'm excersizeing 20 minutes every day, with one day off a week. 3 days of cardio (mostly a wii zumba game, sometimes a walk) 2 days of strength training, and one day with yoga. Consistensy is my goal for now.

I'm a young married woman and mother who dreams someday of being a writer. I love life and love God. I'm a strong Christian with a love for people.

Other Information:
I love to read! And read and read and read! The authors that line my shelves range from classics by Dickens and Austen to Contemporary Christian authors like Francine Rivers. I love C. S. Lewis and Narnia and am a complete Lord of the Rings nerd!
